That's right, beer can dress.

I made it for a final exam in ASA Drawing Senior year in high school. The project had to 'portay a message meaningful to you and can be successfully worn in everyday life.'

I got my friend to save all her empty beer cans and give them to me. I then smashed them flat, nailed holes in the top, bottom, and sides of each can and threaded ribbon through each hole, connecting them all with a bodice and a train to boot.

It fit perfectly, and made the most terrific sound when I walked. It might have turned heads because it was truely innovative or the fact you couldn't hear over the racket. I wore it to the annual Paper Plate Awards hosted by our Drama Club. Instead of clapping, I just twitched my crossed leg. I won Best Dressed. It was Grande.
